202. Lloyd Williams
Death of Mr. Lloyd Williams
The death of Mr. Lloyd Williams, at his residence, " Havilali," Silverdale, on Monday, removed a resident who was highly esteemed throughout the whole district, and one whose passing will be deeply regretted. Deceased, who was 71 years of age, had been ailing for about 18 months with heart trouble. He had been under the care of Dr. West, of Camden, for about 16 weeks. Both Camden doctors had recently attended him, and on Sunday last Dr. Jarvie Hood, of Sydney, consulted with Dr.West, but gave no hope. The heart had been worn right out, and on several occasions the patient had to be operated on and relieved of fluid from round the heart. The end came peacefully shortly before 10 o'clock on Monday night. The late Mr. Lloyd Williams was born in Sydney in 1841. He was the son of the late Captain Williams, and his mother, whose maiden name was Eliza Kable was a descendant of the Kable family, who were amongst the oldest original settlers in Australia. In his younger days deceased followed gold mining at Braidwood, Hill End, and other fields. Afterwards, for a few years, he was engaged in hotel business in Sydney and in the Dubbo district. From the lafter place he came to Silverdale 33 years ago, and was associated with the progress of the Penrith District right up to the time of his death. He was a member of the original Nepean District Agricultural committee, he was engaged in dairying, orcharding (stone and citrus fruits) and grazing, and did very well. He sold locally practically everything he produced. Deceased went in for sheep raising for a while, but later abandoned this. He devoted much attention to flower gardening and was particularly successful with roses. He was a hard-working and industrious man. In former years he went in for pig raising, and was one of the best bacon-curers in the State. He was keenly interested in politics, and was a great supporter of Labor, though of recent years ho was not so actively engaged in these matters. He married a daughter of the late Mr. Alfred Barden, of Cook's River, and is survived by her and two daughters, Mrs. W. E. Baines (Wallacia) and Mrs J. Byrne (Waverley). The funeral took place on Wednesday, and was very largely attended, people coming from all parts of the district to pay their respects to a deceased friend. The remains were laid to rest in the Church of England Cemetery, Mulgoa. Rev. Hall, the rector at Mulgoa, conducted the service.

800. Erle Kenneth Kable
LATE MR. KEN KABLE
One of Bathurst's best known residents who for many years conducted a farming property at Orion Park, died in the District
Hospital on Sunday night after an operation on Wednesday. He was Mr. Erle Kenneth (Ken) Kable, a son of a district pioneer, George Mills Kable, who settled at Orton Park in the middle stages of the last century. Deceased had been in ill-health for a number of years, although his death came as a great shock to his numerous relatives and friends. One of a family of eight, Mr. Kable had spent all his life in the district except for a short period when he travelled throughout the West as salesman for the Beale Piano Co. Born in 1892 and educated at the old Howick Street Public School, Mr Kable married a daughter of another well-known family, Miss Dorothy Sylvia Maloney, at All Saints' Cathedral, Bathurst, in 1919, and acquired a 100-acre property adjoining that of his late father at Orton Park. He continued as a vegetable farmer until 1951 when after the disastrous floods of that year, he sold out to live in Bathurst. However, his love for the soil did not die, and for a couple of seasons he grew vegetables on land near California Productions, until last year when he raised tomatoes on a property at White Rock. He took an active interest in the Bathurst branch of the Vegetable. Growers' Association, and after being on the committee for some years was elected president, which position he held up to the time of his death. Of extremely cheerful disposition, Mr. Kable always had a good word for everyone, and was prepared to assist anyone needing a helping hand. A keen sportsman, deceased was a member of the old Orton Park Cricket Club, being responsible for many fine scores off the bat, as well as being a useful bowler. Commencing in the early 1920's, the club soon did well in the competition. Mr Kable, an ex-Abercrombie Shire councillor at the same time as the late Ben Chifley, was a staunch supporter of the Australian Labor Party. He was a personal friend of Mr. Chifley. Deceased remained a member of the council for several years and was responsible for many improvements in the area. He was a member of the A.H. & P. Association for many years and a regular exhibitor at the Society's shows. Deceased played a good deal of tennis in his younger days. He was also a keen motorist, being a foundation member of the original Bathurst Light Car Club. He had acted in the capacity of agent at Sydney Municipal Markets for numerous district growers. During the war years, Mr. Kable worked for some time in Bathurst Small Arms Factory. He also acted in an advisory capacity to members of 'Ready Maid' quick frozen food firm when they first commenced operations in Bathurst. Deceased is survived by his wife, nephew Michael; sisters Hilda (Mrs. Freestone, Bathurst) and Clarice (Mrs. Astley, Dubbo) ; and three brothers, Claude (Bathurst), Rupert (Bathurst) and Melvyn Lyle ('George') also of Bathurst.. Three brothers, Ilford, Glendon and Frederick predeceased him. Deepest sympathy will be extended to the bereaved relatives. The funeral will leave All Saints' Cathedral today after a service commencing at 2.30. for interment in the Church of England portion of the Bathurst cemetery.
